Climbing Out Review...


Deanna Drake has a past she longs to forget, but won't ever be able to. She's always been the tough one. No one, but her best friend Zara has ever been able to penetrate her cold, hard, shell.

Until Griz

Griz— a.k.a Grady Daniels, Hawks Motorcycle Club second in command, also has a past that he wishes he could undo...all except one part. 

It's her past that brings them together. Only will it be forever?

Holding Out:

​Zara is finally starting to get over a bad relationship when it surfaces again.  Enter Talon leader of the Hawks MC and hot as all get out.  The two of them have been fighting things for a while but finally she gives into his demands.  Then there is crazy friend Deanna, brother Mattie and Mattie's partner Julian.  Between Deanna and Julian I couldn't stop laughing.  Let's not forget hot bikers galore like Blue, Griz and Pick!!

I honestly couldn't find anything I didn't like about this book.  There were times where I was wishing I hadn't been reading this book at work (the library) because oh boy I couldn't help but laughing.  I got quite a few odd looks from patrons, which made me laugh harder.  I mean these characters are amazing and I could see them being comedians (Deanna, Zara and Julian at least).

I honestly felt like this book wasn't long enough because it was so well written.  There is so much more that could have happened with Zara and Talon's story but I am so glad it ended how it did.  Lila has done an AMAZING job with this book and I am glad I had the chance to read it because I have found a new favorite author and can't wait to read more about these characters.

Climbing Out Review:

So while I loved Talon and Zara's story, Deanna and Griz's story was twenty times better.  There was a lot of steamy sex in this book and wow these guys are GREAT!  So in this book it turns out that Zara isn't the only one with a crazy ex and if it weren't for Deanna's crazy ex she and Griz may not have ever ended up together.  Griz had a crazy addict ex who dies leaving Griz to raise his daughter.

All I can say is WOW!  I finished this three days ago and I still don't know what to say about it.  That's how good this book is.  It has rendered me absolutely speechless and I can't wait to read more about these characters.  Blue's book should be good too!
